Chapter 18. Building More Effective Indexes > Creating a New Index Entry

Creating a New Index Entry

The quickest way to mark an index entry is to select it and press Alt+Shift+X. Alternatively, you can choose Insert, Index and Tables; click the Index tab; and choose Mark Entry. Either way, the Mark Index Entry dialog box opens (see Figure 18.1). The text you've selected appears in the Main Entry text box. In some cases, that text serves perfectly well as your index entry.

If you're satisfied with your entry, click Mark. Word inserts an { XE } field code (page 998) in your document that contains the text of your entry. Because the field code is hidden text, you don't see it unless you display hidden text by clicking the Show/Hide Paragraph Marks button on the Standard toolbar.
